Ralph Rogers launched one of the country's most successful, enduring family businesses, and he did it with such flair that he became something of a legend. Over the past one hundred years, Rogers Group, Inc. has built the roads that have become the very fabric of America. From the Ground Up: How Rocks, Roads, and Rogers Group Helped Build the Nation chronicles the first century of Rogers Group, from its humble beginnings in Bloomington, Indiana, to its rise onto the national road-building scene. The company's story is written in the lives of generations of workers and leaders who have served the business since its inception, and their stories have joined with Ralph's to form the many legends that define Rogers Group, Inc. This centennial history shares the triumphs and tragedies that have shaped Rogers Group, Inc. into the remarkable company it is today. Featuring vintage photographs and detailed timelines, From the Ground Up pays tribute to the enduring legacy of Ralph Rogers and the corporation that bears his name. As the company that started it all turns one hundred, it does so remembering the words of its wise founder: A good look back can mean a clearer picture going forward.

Review:

Rogers Group is all-American as all-American gets. Ralph Rogers, the industrious founder of this rock quarrying and road construction company, knew as much about crushing rocks as John Rockefeller knew about drilling for oil and as much as Norman Rockwell knew about oil paintings. In every respect Rogers Group is an all-American institution. . . . Today, Rogers Group is an American icon: the largest family-run rock quarry business in the nation. The company embodies the traits of its founder: hard work, loyalty, and family values is the trilogy the firm lives by. I hope you find the tales of Ralph Rogers the rock crusher as fun and exciting as I did. Sit down and enjoy a fascinating tale and strikingly illustrated history. Regardless of your familiarity with the company, this book will either deepen your beliefs or make you a believer in Rogers Group. --Dan McNichol --from the Foreword
